The Cave Nebula


Mark Shelley


Modified Canon EOS 350D DSLR camera and a Takahashi Epsilon 180ED astrograph, mounted on a Sky-Watcher EQ6 mount.

I love the rich variety of objects in this image: various coloured stars, red emission nebulosity from clouds of hydrogen, blue reflection nebulae and dark patches of dust. It’s a beautiful and complex region of space.
